Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I was only a punk... we're Fortunate, Sun + how's Bayou

midnight sun,


flame on with this Born On The Bayou - Oakee stuff if you're in the mood,
this is the last Great Grateful Dead show I ever saw.

Yes, it's Fogerty jamming with the Dead. In GG Park.

It's Bill Graham's favorite band wishing he were here.
The stage wouldn't be the same without him.
He died before his time in an accident, that he should have avoided, but that's when it happens.
Impulse, rather than instinct, leads more often to sudden demise.
When you see it coming it's like, oh no... bam. An unnecessary chance, a roll of laughing Sam's dice.

The body and brain are mortal.
The legend lives on.

If there's a rock and roll heaven, then the line to get in just got a little longer. And at least one soul is looking towards the end of the queue.
They all want to see the final act, and now, some one wants them to see it too.

Golly! Waauugghhh!

thanx for the link CPW...and i like your tribute to Bill Graham

good energy and vocals on the Foggerty tunes...not much from Jerry though...i thought that the Bayou and Green River could have easily turned into 20 minute jam vehicles (you know, like a rippin 60's Viola Lee...what am i sayin, of course you know), but it seems that John might not have been comfortable with that idea...all the same, both GD and Foggerty appear to be having a lot of fun with it

the song list looks like all one set (?) plus encores...interesting they honored Bill with a classic song selection (except for Bucket and Touch of course)...The Other One is very nice once they get settled into a groove…a tasty Rat…unless I am missing something, i don’t hear Jerry using any effects at all for the entire show (???)...what a great show!

thanks for the replies CPW...will be watching for your posts so i don't miss any addendums...cheers!

thanks sun, nice review + reply.

Fogerty would have been a good choice for a regular guest with the Dead.
Eventually they might have stretched the songs out, 20 min. versions as you suggest, just imagine!
